This sounds like a sound approach to me.

I'm a little confused by part of your diagram though; it appears to
have the libpurple and GUI communicating via DBus (not just the
libpurple (remote mode) connection to the libpurple (normal mode)).
Am i misunderstanding that?  Why is this necessary - it seems like an
unnecessary second level of abstraction.
